Default Didnt follow tennis for a week- which of the top players look better?

Im just asking because I didnt get to follow tennis at all for a week. Who of Djokovic, Federer or Murray played better in the first 2 rounds?

They all looked unspectacular by their own standards, against unimpressive opponents. Hard to read anything from that.

Mate,

Most posters here are tards. That means they only watch their own player (Murray, Djokovic, or Federer) They don't bother to watch anyone else. There is no point in asking because they can only comment on their own player and not anyone elses since none of the top 10 have met yet.

For my part I've only watched Federer and Djokovic and Djokovic seems to be playing effortless consistent tennis right now. He is the favorite. Fed's serve has been lights-out the past two matches but he's been racking up unforced errors like he doesn't care going for power backhand winners and wild forehands. Might be because he knows he could beat any of his opponents in the early rounds with his eyes closed so he's trying some stuff out.

Haven't seen Murray but I assume he's consistent as always.

But remember everyone here is a tard. So don't trust anything anyone says here. For example everything I just posted could be a total lie.

From the highlights I saw that Federer is playing particularly well, is that true?

Fed's been better than expected even if he had a few too many UEs (he still played well) and Djokovic has been on cruise control which has become his typical mode early on in Australia. Murray I haven't watched but he's played mugs and beaten them with according scorelines.

Del Potro seems to be in good form as well and his match with Murray should be interesting.

Yes. You can't judge anything until these players are subject to some real pressure. Federer, in particular. How many times have we seen Federer look smooth, timing the ball well in the early rounds to be found hitting mid-court top spin backhands and 35th row shanks in the latter rounds?

basicically what burrow said

anything but a murray/federer - djokovic final would be a surprise, though. from there, djokovic has the upper hand against any of the other 2 but not by much.

Djoko, Murray, Fed, Del Po all looked very good, Ferrer looks less good than usually, Berdych looked unspecial to me, Tsonga the same.

But Djokovic is still the obvious favorite considering he's the best player in the world, it's his favorite slam and best surface, and he doesn't have Murray, Fed or Del Po in his half.

And Murray second because it's also a great surface for him, he's had some success in recent slams, and he has a good match-up against both Djokovic and Fed.

How many times have we seen that ? very seldom imo When exactly did he do that ? maybe in the last US Open but apart from that

Fed looked very fit to me but didn't control the ball very well against Davydenko. May be related with that very hot day though, the ball is always hard to control on a hot day, "flies" a lot, Simon and Tsonga also said that about that day.

Delpo looks strong (no jinxing intended) and Nole is exceptional as usual. I haven't really paid much attention to Murray, but I think he's doing well too. And of course Federer. So basically they're all doing great so far. I'm rooting for Delpo though! It's typical when it comes to the male players, they're usually very consistent compared to the women.

All the top players have played well, from what I've seen. Murray's forehand is vastly improved and maybe at the end of this tournament lestat can change his horrible sig
